It's summer-time! This is the perfect time to finally do all those things that you put off during the year when you were too busy with school or work. The thing I love the most about summer is that the longer days give you more energy to stay pro-active. It gives you extra inspiration to be productive. So why not take that energy and participate in a dance class? Maybe you can even push yourself to finally do that voice lesson that you've been putting off. Whatever it is that you have always wanted to learn how to do, it has never been a better time to start.
Something that I think everyone can relate to is the fact that we have all made excuses for ourselves. We find the smallest and simplest reasons to convince ourselves not to step outside the safety bubble. Growing up and sometimes to this day, I will see an inspiring dance video and think to myself: “Could I have been at that level if I had started earlier? What if I had decided to really dedicate myself to practice? Would I be where I wanted to be now?” Regrets come pouring into my mind about how much time I have wasted, and how much time I could have spent being more productive.
The important thing is not to allow yourself to be discouraged by what-if thoughts. The best time to start is always now. Forget thinking about how good you would be if you had only done this or that. Forget wasting your time on feeling sorry for yourself, or making excuses about how you could never be capable of doing whatever it is you want to do. Dive in headfirst to the challenge and you will see progress. Be patient with yourself and understand that no one ever became a professional overnight.
Are you spending your summer well? If the answer is yes, then good for you! Continue on your journey of productivity and conquer your inner battles. However, if the answer is no... stop and think about what it is that you want to finally start doing.
